RESERVE NOW

Since we have reserved airline seats early, the prices are good.  However, time is of the essence as the airlines will not hold these seats at the best prices for much longer.  Already flights are filling up as the airlines have cut back on the number of flights.  Therefore, make plans to go now and forward an $800 deposit per person.  In summary, now is the time to make plans and quickly forward a deposit!  Please invite your friends along and tell them about this truly wonderful travel opportunity.  So many have called already with an interest, so I know we will have another fun filled and spiritual pilgrimage.  Space is limited and will sell out, as it has in the past.  Now is not too early to plan for this pilgrimage of a lifetime.  Ask anyone who has been with us before and they will tell you to go!

FOR MORE INFORMATION:  Call Altura Tours 1-800-242-4122 or Fr. Michael Hoyer 954-473-6261.
